iphone 4 -

The iPhone 5, expected to be announced next month, will feature the same A5 system-on-a-chip that powers the iPad 2, claims website 9to5mac.

The information is said to have come from an anonymous source close to iPhone 5 development.

In addition, iPhone 5 is reported to feature 1GB or RAM and an 8 megapixel camera. In contrast, the iPad 2 is reported to feature only 512MB of RAM, as does the iPhone 4.

All this extra power will allow Apple to introduce its voice recognition application, Assistant. You'll find more on this over on 9to5mac.com.

Expect official info on iPhone 5 on October 4, which happens to be next Tuesday.

Dude, I kid. The GTX comment wasn't for real.. The card is bigger and more power hungry than the phone itself.

Would be so easy to add support on iPad for a Bluetooth joypad (like the PS3s).

Oh, and having an Nvida card is invalid, it's a completely different system. The iPad 2s graphics power is pretty amazing, so sticking this on a smaller screen can only produce even better results.

Thats an interesting point there Woffls me ol' nemesis. I play on an iPad quite a lot. The games that are created to use a touch surface are fantastic and a really pleasurable way to play games. But, the games that use virtual buttons on the surface, although they work, are a little cumbersome. Just the lack of physical feedback is slightly off putting, but adding to that the annoyance of not really knowing where the buttons are can be really frustrating.

GTA Chinatown Wars is a prime example of this. It is quite possibly the best version of the game. The screen size and resolution are fantastic and the touch controls add a lot to the game. But, the virtual joystick just doesn't feel right. Then, theres the issue of finding your 'buttons' in a heated moment, only to find yourself leaping from your vehicle under the wheels of a police car. Awkward.

So, although I love the iPad/iPhone, I still find a lot of classic gaming styles to be a chore.

Fit it with buttons and I'll consider it.

Fit it with a Geforce GTX and I'll consider it.
